I'll open these 2 pictures by Bill Allard sometimes when I'm working from my computer and click between them after I've finished an invoice or email. There's something so wonderful about the low light and the the long shutter causing the images to soften slightly. I've met Bill and spoken to him about his process- I asked him at one point if he had scrimmed a subject in a picture I particularly like and he said, "Scrim? A scrim! ...you dont bring a fucking scrim to photograph the Amish."
...Bill's the kind of photographer you think you'll be before you learn how 99% of them manage to make a living.
